Cilioser and cilioser...
We've been taken to task by a Strange-Tripper for not visiting some danged lake named for an ancestor of his while on our road-trip to Libby. Hey, we were busy with important work, such as tracking down and capturing the dangerous Lonicera ciliosa. I was fascinated with the cup-shaped arrangement within which the flowers are suspended, sheltering the delicate little blossoms and providing a nice haven for the hummingbirds which feed upon them. My botany book put it somewhat more succinctly: "Terminal leaves usually perfoliate."

Hey, Happy Solstice to all Strange Trippers. Let's all dash from our respective workplaces or other places of confinement at 12:05pm MDT and give a great primal scream. Or not.
